1. Draw a poppy – stamen and petal outline

So we draw a trapezoid shape and then draw rippling lines on it.

Then we draw the petals. First, we draw the top and bottom petals. Note the lines around the edges.

Finally, we draw the left and right flower petals.

Looks easy to do, doesn’t it?


2.Stamen details

Then we started to draw the details of the stamen.

We draw some small circles, which are the pistils.

Then we draw some split arcs on top of the stamens. Notice the angle of the arcs.

This gives your stamen more dimension.

Finally, we draw some shadow lines. And the bending effect on the edge of the petals.


3. Drawing shadows

Then we start drawing the lines inside the petals. Complete the shading.

Note the direction of the lines at the bend of the petals.

At the stamen, we also need to add some shadows.

Finally, we draw the branches. Then draw some thorns.
